Porsche 24:19

So which was the best of the Porsche Le Mans wins? They've won over 21% of the races so there are plenty to chose from!

What makes the win great? They pummeled the opposition, it was close, they had a great fight back, the car was cool, the driver was legendary, it was my first year? What is your reason?

Overall wins only Privateers and factory cars. Think cool wins rather than pedantic what is a Porsche

1997, the Porsche that should not win and became the foundation of the greatest Le Mans driver to date.

1985, my first year and the first sight of amazing cars racing at an amazing circuit, Got hooked on Le Mans so if you work out how much i have spent following the cars since then i could probably have entered a team that year for that sort of money.

The 1970 Win. The first overall victory at LeMans for Porsche. Although the 917 had been developed from the flawed machine that debuted in 1969, and had won the Daytona 24 Hours earlier in the year, there had to be question marks about how it would do in France. The questions were answered.

When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought there was a successor of the wonderful book 24:16 in the making, so I was a bit disappointed to find out the true contents of this thread

I don't have a favourite or 'best' Porsche win. I haven't really analysed those that occurred before I started going. I'd probably say 1970 simply because that was the year the film was made and the only time that my late father went to Le Mans. I discount the imposter GT win in 1994 and probably the '16 and '17 wins that were downright lucky. 1998 perhaps?

I liked the 1994 win. I just liked the car and wanted one.

I think the 1996 one is a good one. They say to win Le Mans first you have to beat Porsche and that is exactly what it did, it beat the two works GT cars! I was also a fan of that car too.

But I know what you mean and the first win is iconic.

You can’t rule out the recent ones too, the competition was strong.

There were some beautiful looking cars in the ‘70s, and some stories, but also some pretty dull wins. Hey, ho, you get that. The ‘80s was the real dominance period, but low on competition, it you have to like a 956/962.

'16 and '17 you can in my mind. Astonishing (nigh on unbelievable) luck in '16 and not far off being beaten by a P2 in '17.....

I'm not going to vote.

I would probably say 1996 but for the wrong reasons.
I was only 12 in 1987, so all up to and including that one I've only read about and not really experienced, so I can't comment on those.

1996 was probably the first Le Mans I saw for extended periods on TV.
Previously my parents never let me watch the race but for limited periods because the race was always right in the middle of exams/tests at school.
No such thing in 1996, so I was free to watch

I liked that car too, I still have a miniature of it on my book shelves
